Bom Clima - A Neighborhood In Guarulhos

(click image to enlarge)

When I heard that Curtis had been hit by a car, I thought that it was in the downtown area of the city. He wrote to me and told me it was in the suburbs.
"Guarulhos and Sao Paulo are huge cities, but we don't work in the city part of the city, you know? Like say we were working in SLC, which is about the same size as Guarulhos, the area we occupy would be like, West Jordan, out by my brothers house. Just houses and houses and houses. Seriously. But our area is really small and the huge international airport in the middle of the city takes up quite a large chunk of space. The area where I got hit is just a normal neighborhood, which at times has the completely random crazed drunk teenager hitting missionaries with Fiats."

Guarulhos is a city in the state of São Paulo in Brazil. The population in 2003 was 1,160,468. The name comes from the Tupi language. It is a suburb of São Paulo. Guarulhos is the 2nd largest city in São Paulo state and one of the biggest cities in Brazil.

The city is accessed by a major airport for São Paulo, the largest in South America, São Paulo-Guarulhos International Airport (GRU). The airport is 25-50 minutes from São Paulo's downtown, depending on the traffic. Most international flights landing in Brazil go to Guarulhos airport (with a small fraction landing directly in Rio de Janeiro).
